Luke 17:7Luke 17:10

29. Teaching concerning Service

7 But which of you, having a slave who is plowing or tending sheep, will say to him when he has come in from the field, Come immediately and recline at table?

8 Will he not rather say to him, Prepare something that I may dine, and agird yourself and serve me until I eat and drink; and after that you will eat and drink?

9 He does not thank the slave because he did the things which were ordered, does he?

10 So also you, when you do all the things which are ordered you, say, We are aunprofitable slaves; we have done what we ought to have done.
